Getting There

This is a delightful trail along the 5150-foot shelf left by the ancient Lake Bonneville. Once you conquer the climb up to the shelf, you have a pleasant walk along the mountainside that is surprisingly level. The view of the city and the sunsets make this a wonderful walk. This portion of the terrace trail starts east of Farmington and goes to Baer Canyon above Fruit Heights.

Access #1 - Farmington: From Main Street in Farmington, go east on 1400 N. to North Compton Road, turn right, and then turn left onto Grand View Drive. Drive up the hill to Bella Vista Drive. Turn left. Drive north on Bella Vista Drive to the cul-de-sac just north of Shepard Canyon. Park here. The trail starts on a steep, paved road to a water tank then proceeds northeast up the hill to a wide shelf at an elevation of 5150 feet. Stay on this shelf all the way to Baer Canyon. Access #2 - Fruit Heights Trailhead with Parking: From the South Mountain Road in Fruit Heights, turn east on East Oaks Drive (~300 S.) and wind up the hill to 1800 E. (Davis Blvd). Turn left and drive to the end of the road. A parking lot is up a small road to the east by a water tank. After going about 100 feet east of the water tank, turn right to the south and follow the jeep road as it angles up the hillside to the mouth of Little Canyon.

Lovely trail. Easy to follow and not worry about getting off course. Not too slushy or icy. I wore regular hiking boots without spikes and did great.

Trail has very pretty views of the valley. Covered in snow right now. This trail is pretty steep especially for an easy trail. This really should be updated to be an intermediate difficulty.

First to Review

Really it’s just the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. But it was a nice hike.
